I was tempted to skip them this year, but what the hell, it’s good to have goals, right?

In 2008, I Will…Β 

Lose 20lbs. I have to because I am..

Attending BlogHer 2008!!!!! πŸ˜€Β  I am so nervous(everyone will finally see how dorky I really am) but I am excited to go and hope you guys will be there too! I’m kind of afraid no one will know who I am, which will lead me to want to..

Step up my blogging, both in frequency and quality. I had a few really good posts this year, and I’d like to continue that trend.

I will also stop worrying so much about what people think of me. People are too busy worrying about themselves to think of me, and I am way more critical of myself than anyone else is of me.

I plan to take more risks, and experience more of life. Way too often I stop myself from doing something because I’m afraid of doing something stupid. So what? Worst case scenario, I look stupid and then have great blog material, right? It’s a win-win all around.

I want to start doing more volunteer work. The PTA stuff is fine, but more than anything I’d like to start working with the local Animal Rescue Foundation and help out at their monthly adoption fairs.Β  Both our doggies were rescues, and it would be great to give back in some way.

Lastly, I am going toΒ  brush up on the candidates and go out and vote this year. Why is this important? Because I’ve never actually done it before! (More on this subject later.)

So there ya have it..what’s on your resolution list for 2008???

    My resolutions are eerily similar–except for the Blogher part. I don’t think I’m quite ready for it–yet. πŸ™‚

    Still stuck on the line where you said you have never voted before….oh, my poor democratic-government loving heart.

    Good on you.

    Now just make sure you vote for the right person. Wink, wink.

    I haven’t decided whether or not to do a resolutions list…but I think it would be a good idea!

    I just have 2 resolutions thus far – 1) start up 2 new blogs (both personal ones), and 2) actively work on getting out of debt (my school loans are killing me).

    BTW, I am a physical therapist, personal trainer, and former pilates instructor – let me know if you need any tips or advice about losing those 20 pounds. πŸ™‚ Good luck!

    I’ve got the frequency, so I guess I’ll be working on the quality thing!

    I have made the dreaded weightloss goal as well. I’m not looking forward to it.

    Those sounds good, I’m keeping it simple this year: less TV, more books, more writing.

    I seriously need to lose weight. 50lbs first, then 20 more! I need to exercise daily. I need to not eat sugar so much, and I need to vacuum more. πŸ™‚

    I too am going to start taking more risks this year – including going to BlogHer even though I’m terrified of being outed as a dork. I’ll see you there. πŸ™‚

    Never voted? Oh hon, we’ll turn you into a political woman before the year is out.

    And I’m thrilled you’ll be going to BlogHer this year! I look forward to meeting you!
